Scuba Gear Reviews by Martin Abbiss


Rating: Angles... 11/06/2007

I bought this mask with the hopes that I would be able to use my contacts - as I do on the surface - and the gauge-reading portion like reading glasses. The problem is with the angle. I can read my computer, however the problem is with my compass... I cant bring it to the right angle to read from the top, through the reading lens portion of the mask lens. Only one other reviewer talked about the angle of the lens, etc. I should have listened to that. Otherwise, the mask is comfortable, holds its seal and works well.

Rating: If you dont want to spend $200... 07/26/2007

This bag is huge. I usually dont put my weights in it because it can actually get too heavy. However, it will hold a 7mm wetsuit, skin, BC, fins, booties and all the redundant gear you can think of. It has held up under a great deal of punishment too. The zippers and the canvass hold up great. I didnt want to spend $200 on a hard box/bag to hold all my gear, so this was perfect. It also fits on the shelf in my walk-in closet with gear in it.

Sherwood Tank Mesh Protector
Rating: Sherwood-Scuba-Tank-Mesh-Protector Grywolff 02/15/2007

It fit on the tank very easily and was easy to trim down to the correct size. Its a brand new Faber steel 100, so I want it to stay looking as nice as possible for as long as possible.

Sherwood Tank Mesh Protector
Rating: Sherwood-Scuba-Tank-Mesh-Protector Grywolff 02/15/2007

Nice product. I like the handle, which conforms to your hand...unlike the solid handle models which do not. It makes carrying my Steel 100 MUCH easier than just by the valve. I think I would rather velcro fasteners as the buckles are hard to get really tight, especially with a tank protector on it. But, other than that, it is easy to take on and off, easy to store and makes carrying the tank an easy job.

Princeton Tec Shockwave II Light
Rating: Princeton-Tec-Shockwave-II-Light Grywolff 10/27/2006

Great light...bright enough to light up openings 10-15 feet away and scan an area without having to get up close and personal - if time is important and your hunting bugs. It held on to my wrist without fail and was always there when I needed it.

XS Scuba Xscerrory Mini Retractor Clip
Rating: XS-Scuba-Xscerrory-Mini-Retractor-Clip Grywolff 10/27/2006

This BC is the one I certified with and the most comfortable for me. I am much more comfortable with an intigrated BC, and fine use for the ample pockets and metal rings/buckles. It has a great sturdy feel to it as well, and a great name behind it. I hope to keep it for many years and many dives to come.
